Amber Room Rating: Not Rated
Wow again. It was just a fabulous experience to see this room.
Catherine Palace Rating: Not Rated
Another Wow factor. The interior was amazing to see. Again I was given lift access.
Church of the Savior on Spilled Blood Rating: Not Rated
This had easy mobility access which enabled me to go inside this magnificent Church. It was an incredible sight to see all the mosaic pictures which were in themselves works of art.
Hermitage Museum Rating: Not Rated
You can never tire of going to the Hermitage Museum. There are works of art to suit everyone's taste. Three hours just flew by. We were lucky enough to go first thing in the morning when, although crowded, you could still get round easily. Our guide even found lifts for me and my scooter so that I could keep up with our group.
Neva River Cruise Rating: Not Rated
It was a very nice boat ride and very interesting to see parts of St. Petersburg from a different aspect. Very enjoyable experience.
Peterhof Palace Rating: Not Rated
We took the Hydrofoil to Peterhof and it was just a Wow factor The gardens and fountains are just magnificent,. We had lunch in the restaurant in Peterhof which, although a set meal, was very good.
Private Tour Rating: Not Rated
In St. Petersburg we used Alla Tours for a 2 day tour and cannot praise them highly enough, or fail to recommend them. We communicated by email on their site and every time we posted a question, a reply came through usually within 24 hours. Every step of the way was very easy to follow, including printing off our tour tickets and our invoice. Unusually, no prepayment was required. In fact, we didn't have to pay until the second day of our tour.
Our tour guide Tanya was a lovely, friendly, helpful and very knowledgeable person, who made our tour so interesting, fun and very worthwhile. They have a maximum of 16 people. On our first day we had 12 people and on the second we had 10. We did the Comfort Tour and saw so much. Lunch on both days was included and the choice of restaurants excellent and although set meals, the food was very good..
The driver of the mini bus was also exceptionally helpful. Always there to lend a hand to everyone getting on and off the mini bus and loading and unloading my mobility scooter.
